After a relatively quiet summer LeBron James sat down with ABC’s Robin Roberts to shed some light on his life in the wake of NBA championship No. 2. James chatted with the “Good Morning America” host in Akron Ohio to discuss his playing future recent drug scandals in sports and his role models. “I’m happy right now being in Miami. Hopefully everything works out” James said about his opt-out clause after the upcoming season. He didn’t offer any hints about his next decision. As for steroids James called Alex Rodriguez’s problems “a bad message” one that has a “direct effect on kids” that hope to be athletes. When asked about his role models growing up James cited Michael Jordan who made a young LeBron want “to be able to fly in the air” and hit “game-winning shots.” Unlike the past two summers James’ name mainly has stayed out of the headlines since the Heat clinched its NBA title over the San Antonio Spurs. In 2011 there was a media furor over the Heat’s Finals loss while in 2012 LeBron captured a championship and Olympic gold. James’ name has been mentioned recently as he is reportedly considering a bid for president of the players’ union. But after considering the matter for several days he decided not to run USA Today reported Monday evening.
